Am I right or am I left - to be wrong? Where I make a left and get there and in making a right end up lost in Washington.

Occupy Spring Rant For - Can Wall St. Occupy The Heartland Part 5


Wall St your Subprime equation is outsourcing American dreams.

That your bankrupting policies are downsizing America’s future.

Your think tank billionaire brother’s solutions are destroying lives,

Where your economic segregation creates this diverse social division.


Your Great Depression is from the right side of Conservative politics.

We have two sides of the tracks that used to have Middle Class ground.

Now that is tattered torn ripped apart by Washington Wall St. bickering.

Where White Collar Politicians - become Blue Collar morticians.


God Bless Made in America, proud Pledge of Allegiance - Star Spangled.

It is not about special interests of Demigod monolith Norquist pledges

That serve Golden Pyramid Washington - Wall St Idol mansion masters.

Who are autocratic dictator Caesar Murdoch Putin puppet manipulators.


Hell is Pharaoh boa constrictors that enslave nations with economic death.

Hail Moses, upon the worldwide cry for Democracy, “Let they people go.”

God created this miracle of 1776, over King George in Tea Party Occupy

We need to divorce the Republican/Democratic Tory Ivy School fraternity.


Lord, America is not a campus for society’s social elite castes to exploit.

We need no student government running the United States of America.

Where the Real Change is the Same Ole Thing that just gets far worse.

Where private equity politicians and billionaires are Enron endless affairs.


Since the courts have mandated that Conglomerates can contribute their share,

That have made hostile takeovers in merging our Republican Democrat clones.

Evicting “We the people” like Obama’s nation Progressive’s expunging of Liberals.

That political parties are Romney greased officials in avoiding civilian relevant issues.


We are a nation, where Washington is greased with pick pocket shim sham shame

In treasure chests in Congressional compensation of Executive CEO benefit packages.

That Congress has become a Wall St Reagan father figure in worldwide Free Trade,

While in America it is a Mubarak family regime that holding employment hostage.


Our Father who art in heaven,

America is in political purgatory

Please give Wall St. and Washington

Economic hearts and souls.


Hail Mary,

Made the womb of America,

Germinate in mother’s loud cries

That we need this economic miracle

To fall upon Wall St, and Washington,

Where they kneel before people’s wishes.

Where we can pass down bright future’s

Where our nation children are employed

With American Dream’s History and Heritage.



This lifelong Democrat has divorced the Real Change Party.

He has claimed his Declaration of Independence Freedom

Living that American Dream in being a Free Speech poet,

Where in his Uni-Verse there is this poetic De-Termination

That after being Terminated for Poetry in Conservative Alabama

That America must judge my words using the Liberal Truth.

That the true obscenity is in Wall St and Washington,

Not in this Ben Franklin Ole Ben doppelganger.


Am I right or am I left - to be wrong?

Well in a deep well of thought

I will never flow over with perfection

Nor will I drown inside imperfection.

I will just float in between,

“We the people” of Camelot Democracy,

And Wall St and Washington’s Reagan Republic

That one occupies that hellish prostrating position,

While another that Occupy American Dream.
